into a supposed u.s. ally by the george w. bush administration when they were searching for something to call a diplomat i can victory after the fiasco that was the fake weapons of mass destruction in iraq. it is hard enough to figure out how americans can best help out popular uprisings of people that want to determine their own future instead of living under a despot. that is hard enough. how do you figure it out when the despot in question is our despot. when he has enjoyed american support, american seal of approval? that's why there was this collective national stomach turning when we saw images of iuste g cannisters thrown at the people in egypt. the u.s. was neutral, then moved against mubarak. but had mubarak kept control of the military, ultimately it wouldn't have been tear gas, it would have been american tanks and f-16 fighter jets squaring off against the peaceful protest movement america was supporting. in libya now, there's some of that same awkwardness. justin elliott had a piece at salon.com that was helpful and interesting, noting that the george w. bush administration's emb

for the next hour. this is the u.s. navy ship built in newport news, virginia, in 1969. the uss mount whitney is a big command and control ship which essentially means it can oversee really complex operations that the military is involved in. it was deployed to haiti, for example, in 1994 as the united states played a roll in ousting the military hunta that had taken over that country. remember when john mccain said today we are all georgians, when russia and the nation of georgia were having a war, and john mccain wanted us to start fighting russia alongside the georgians? it was the uss whitney deployed to bring humanitarian aid. it was the first ship to reach that georgia n part it went to. that's considered to be the most advanced command and control ship that the united states has ever floated. it is where the u.s. has been running the libyan war out of. between the admiral and a u.s. army general, this is where they've been running the war in libya from. as of last night, the uss mount whitney we think is not going to be the headquarters for the libyan war. that war effort will now be r
announcements about u.s. wars, about u.s. military interventions. some of them amounting to small wars, some amounting to very large wars. now that the united states has embarked on its latest new military intervention in libya, i would love to be able to show you the current president's oval office address on the subject, but there isn't one. president obama did make a public statement saturday afternoon that we had started that military intervention in libya, but did so from the confines of a convention center in brazil. eight years to the day that george w. bush stared unsteadily into the camera and announced the iraq invasion, president obama announced his own military intervention, but pointedly declined the opportunity to do it in a way that u.s. presidents usually do. president obama taking all sorts of criticism from the right over the past few days for not cancelling his trade visit to latin america as a result of this military action in libya. and the white house knew that criticism would come. their decision to go ahead with the trip anyway, to forego the chest thumping commander
there are people trying it. from tunisia to hosni mubarak, the great u.s. ally of three decades. to yemen, to worries about al qaeda and extremism in that area of the world. he is supposedly our ally against terrorism. even moammar gadhafi, most americans if they think of him at all think of him as a ridiculous cartoon villain. even he has recently been considered an ostensible american ally. whose planes the american military shot down in 1986. a man whose house ronald reagan shot a missile. even gadhafi was made into a supposed u.s. ally by the george call a diplomatic victory after the fiasco that was the fake weapons of mass destruction in iraq. it is hard enough to figure out how americans can best help out popular uprisings of people that want to determine their own future instead of living under a despot. that is hard enough. how do you figure it out when the despot in question is our despot. when he has enjoyed american support, american seal of approval? that's why there was this collective national stomach turning when we saw images of made in the usa tear gas cannisters thrown
that the military is involved in. the uss mt. whitney was deployed to haiti as the u.s. played a role in ousting the military junta that took over the country. remember when john mccain said today we are all georgians? that was when russia and the nation were having a war and john mccain wanted the u.s. to start fighting russia alongside the georgians? during that war it was the uss mt. whitney that was deployed to deliver aid in georgia and the first ship to reach the port that it went to. mt. whitney is considered the most advanced ship that the u.s. has floated. this is where the u.s. has been running the libyan war out of. between the ship's admiral and the u.s. attorney general, this is where the u.s. has been running the war in libya from. as of last night, the uss mt. whitney we think is not going to be the headquarters for the war anymore. that effort will now be run by nato. both the no-fly zone part and the bombing ground troops part which they call like protecting civilians. the uss mt. whitney named after the highest peak will no longer be the place where from which it is run. does t
the opportunity to do that in a way that u.s. presidents usually do. president obama taking all sorts of criticism from the right for not cancelling his trade visit to latin america as a result of this military action in libya. the white house knew that criticism would come. their decision to go ahead with the trip and forego the chest-thumping commander in chief theater at the start of a military convention, that is a fascinating and blunt demonstration of how much this presidency is not like that of george w. bush. do you remember when george w. bush campaigned for president by saying he wanted america to have a humble foreign policy? candidates for president love to say stuff like that. >> i don't think it's a role of the united states to walk into a country and say we do it this way, so should you. >> the united states must be humble and proud of our values, but humble in figure out how to chart their course. >> candidates say stuff like that when they are running because americans like that idea. americans like to vote for the idea. we like that kind of talk and we expect it from candidates.
hurdle to make it harder for students to vote. the u.s. supreme court has affirmed that if you are living somewhere to attend college there you can vote there. but that doesn't mean republicans have to make it easy. so no student i.d.s. in new hampshire republicans are trying the same deal. >> the kids coming out of the school and basically doing what i did when i was a kid, voting as a liberal. you know, that's what kids do. they don't have life experience and they just vote their feelings. >> stupid kids. that new hampshire republican legislator there has introduced legislation that would only let college students vote in their college towns if they or their parents had previously established permanent residency there. another new hampshire bill would end election day registration, which would disproportionately impact first-time voters and young voters, who, again, are more likely to vote democratic. over in texas they're dealing with a massive $27 billion budget deficit. in order to deal with that state's disastrous budget emergency, republican governor rick perry has introduced five
